I had previously finished reading Mike Tyson's autobiography and saw that it was co-written by Larry "Ratso" Sloman who had also co-written two other books I enjoyed by Howard Stern. So I went to Amazon to see what else Sloman had written, or co-written and I found this book by David Blaine as a $2.99 e-book. I didn't really know what to expect when I first started reading it but must say I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

At first I thought this book was going to be the history of magic according to David Blaine, but he also shared how to do a few easy card tricks. He discusses some of the influential magicians and their signature illusion. On some of the illusions he shares how the it is done other ones he does not either because he doesn't want to share or doesn't know.

Once he gets through sharing the history or illusion and side shows Blaine starts sharing his story. The stories surrounding him getting his start in magic by working as a waiter in New York City and doing parties. He discusses just walking up to people at clubs and on the streets to perform tricks. Blaine would constantly practice his card tricks to be solid. His story of getting on television, being offered a show on MTV and turning it down to signing with ABC, is an interesting one.

The book really picks up pace when Blaine shares the behind the scenes information on his television specials including getting ready for both the buried alive and frozen stunts.

I would recommend this book for anyone that is interested in magic and/or illusion. I think with some of the card tricks, that are clearly explained in writing along with illustrations, could be good for a shy child to learn maybe to make friends. There is also a chapter dealing with confidence and shares how some of the great showman have built up their confidence that could help encourage a shy child.

If your a huge David Blaine fan and are hoping to learn more about the Mysterious Stranger through this book that will not happen. Blaine plays it pretty close to the vest concerning information about his private life. He does share his mother's story of fighting cancer, briefly winning and then ultimately losing the battle. The story never gets to personal beyond that.

This book is a mind-blower. Open it anywhere and start reading (which is how I read a lot, I'm pretty ADD) and you'll have a hard time putting it down. Each time I open the book, I end up sitting there with my jaw dropping open, and saying "Holy @#$%&*! Listen to this!", a lot. Blaine talks about magic in history, about the most astounding magicians and their lives, about the dedication it takes to do this. He talks about his own life, and his travels and some really bizarre stuff he's seen and done. After seeing footage of him on the street, I had come to the conclusion that he was from another planet. Evidently he's not really magic or non-human. One thing I'm getting out of this book is what an extraordinary amount of dedication and passion magicians have, and just how many thousands of hours it takes them to get this good. This book is really fascinating. Plus, who knew the guy could write so well, too?

I bought Mysterios stranger just days ago after being a David Blaine fan for several years. I have read it twice, once beginning to end. Blaine is an expert at his craft and is truly dedicated. Blaine tells the history of magic and reveals the stories of some of the great showmen of all time. The book takes a look at Blaine's bio and some of his magic and feats of endurance. The layout, art, and editing of the book are as brilliant as Blaine's magic. I would recommend this book to anyone, Blaine fan or not.

I truly respect the message that Blaine spreads and the manner in which he carries himself. He is always humble and spreads joy to people of all race, religion, and class. He believes(just as I) that mankind is capable of many things and that we always reach for our full potential. Blaine,as Houdini in his time, has set a new standard. I look forward to more from him.

I have to admit that I am not a magician, and I had never really heard of David Blaine until recently. I got this book for my boyfriend for his birthday. He loves it! I have taken a look at it, too, and one of the things I love the most is that it isn't a "normal" book by far. It's full of quotes and pictures and stories (good for those of us out there who have short attention spans and love pictures). David Blaine is a fascinating individual, and this book certainly exceeded my expectations! Very inspiring, I would highly recommend!

This book presents a fascinating look into the life of a very interesting man, David Blaine. I have come to gain a greater appreciation for the man and his art, and learned more about his eccentricities, his stunts, and how he got to where he is today. Along with being an interesting biography, this book presents invaluable tips and tricks to anyone interested in magic. One of my favorite tricks I learned from this book is a method by which you can know what someone's card is over the phone. If you want to know more about street magic, David Blaine, magic tricks, or just want an interesting read, pick it up.

Cool concept for a book. I didn't read that the promotion involved in the book ended years ago ☹️

I just received this book and I could not put it down until I finished it, literally! Blaine is very articulate, engaging, and entertaining with his writing! It is a mix of highlights in magic history, Blaine's personal history, and some great magic to learn!! What more could one ask for? The book is beautifully illustrated!!!
If you're a fan of David Blaine, history, and or magic I would highly recommend this book!! David has done it again!!
